Olive Downs camping area
Set among mulga trees, this campground has a short walking track and a good lookout over jump-up country. This is a lovely, secluded and serene place with abundant birdlife. Going west along this road, you see some fantastic scenery and wildlife; wallabies and wedge-tailed eagles are a common sight. Access is via the Jump Up Loop Rd, off Silver City Hwy about 55 km north of Tibooburra. Bring your own water.

This campsite is located in Sturt National Park
Sturt National Park is one of Australia’s driest, most remote national parks. It’s a sea of sand, seemingly endless gibber plains, red rock and mulga bushes. Lake Pinaroo, near Fort Grey in the park’s east, was placed on the Ramsar list in 1996 – when it fills it is a significant refuge for large numbers of waterbirds and waders.
